Adrafinil Powder Dosage
There are several different ways to measure powdered Nootropics. For the substances that aren’t too potent, a scoop can be used; this is often provided with the product. Whilst scoops may be an easy option without the hassle of purchasing another measuring device, they are not very accurate. The amount of powder that fits in the scoop will be dependent upon the density of the substance. Generally speaking, this method would not be recommended for Adrafinil powder. Adrafinil powder is a potent substance and one that should only be taken in small quantities. Since very large Adrafinil doses can be toxic, it is best to take the time to measure Adrafinil powder dosage accurately.
The majority of people taking Adrafinil powder seem to measure the dosage using accurate (0.001) scales. This should provide a much more accurate measure of Adafinil powder, and ensures that the consumer knows precisely how much they are taking. It is possible to buy relatively cheap scales from online marketplaces such as Amazon. Weighing boats may also help the process.
Tip: keep your phone away from your scales as having it close can disturb the reading.
Ensuring that the Adrafinil powder dosage is accurate is also important because people may react differently to the substance, and the ‘optimal dosage’ will vary from person to person. It is often recommended that when you first take Adrafinil powder, you take a relatively small dose (e.g. 100mg) and work your way up gradually. This way you will be able to monitor your response to each dose in detail, making it easier to work out which dose works best for you. It may be best to take each dosage for a week or two before moving up to the next amount.
Whatever dose you opt for, sources state that you should not take Adrafinil daily, sticking to a maximum of two or three times a week at times when you need to feel alert. Adrafinil is usually sold in 300mg doses when in capsule form. The majority of people recommend 300mg as a maximum dose, although some have reported taking up to 600mg on a regular basis.

“About 30 minutes after dosing, I began to feel the onset; I felt maybe a little bit heavier, my eyes were open a little more, I felt as though I was obligated to pay attention to uninteresting things. 90 minutes into the experience, I began feeling what I believe its full effects. I had an increased awareness of what was going on around me, I felt very optimistic about everything, and I had almost God-like powers to think and concentrate. I felt very much awake … It is now six hours after the dose, and I am still feeling the plateau of this drug.”
‘Shphongle 22’ on the same thread wrote that they take doses of 600mg Adrafinil four times a week. This variance in dosage just goes to show how differently people can react to the same substance, and reinforces the importance of identifying your ‘optimal dosage’ before taking Adrafinil regularly. It should be mentioned that taking large amounts of Adrafinil on a regular basis is not recommended and could cause adverse side effects.
